Candlestick Glitter Chalkboard Signs

Pin It
This year has been so different than any other Christmas in my adult past. I have never been one to make many things as far as Christmas crafts go. I usually buy most of my stuff at the store and just decorate. One or two things might appear here and there that I made, but that's it. This year...well, I know I have at least 12 things already thanks to the Christmas Crafts Series a couple of weeks ago, plus the other couple I have shown you. I don't why it's been so different this year...but it has. I'm going to allot it to having a cute little toddler that likes to paint :) It gives me a great opportunity to make fun things with her by my side making a mess. lol

So, here's another fun little craft that can be used for almost any holiday of the year. All you have to do is erase the Christmas/Winter stuff and put "Boo" or something similar. Add another sign, get rid of one, etc.

The supplies I used:
Cut wood from the craft store
Candlesticks (You can get these at the dollar store, I found these ones at Michaels)
Paint
Painter's tape
Chalkboard Paint
Glitter
School glue
Hot glue
Ribbon

First, I painted all the wood and candlesticks. These wood blocks already came beveled when I bought them, so they worked perfect for signs.

 After the paint on the wood blocks dried, I taped off the top square.

 Then spray painted it with some chalkboard paint.

 For the bottom of the candlesticks, I decided I wanted a dipped glitter look. So, I used a small paint brush and brushed on some school glue then sprinkled on the glitter.

 I learned this trick years and years ago...to keep glitter on, hairspray it.
Great way to get glitter to stay on!
To make it easy, I used a chalkboard pen and wrote what I wanted on the wood blocks. I then hot glued the block onto the top of the candlestick. I made sure to put it on the top edge of the candlestick since the block wasn't wide enough to cover the hole where the candle is supposed to be.

 I then tied some ribbon around it to make it more festive.

 It's fun adding a little handmade touches into my Christmas decor. And I'm sure in years to come, especially with another set of helping hands on the way, I'll just be adding more and more :)
